    Anybody here ever install a patio?

    There's about a 15 x 10 plot of land in our backyard that I want to make into a concrete patio. However, I'm really not one with my hands or construction type of guy. Does anybody have any tips or recommendations as to where to start?
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    I did it last year. Look into getting it stamped with a rock or stone pattern with added colors. It is a tad pricey but the look is astounding. I will post more later when time allows.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Find someone who is handy, knows what they're doing, and is interested in making some extra money.

    Edit: If you don't, check with Home Depot. We put in a new driveway (plain concrete) and walkway (stamped / stained) last November. They gave us the best price, we were very happy with their work, and also got the 6 months / no interest deal for paying via the HD credit card.

    Yeah, I was looking into Home Depot. Apparently, not only do they do installations, but the one near me has instructional classes once a week for various jobs to do around the house. Turns out pouring concrete is in a couple weeks so I might have to check that out before anything.
